Wow!

Máiréad is coming out with her own violin / fiddle line called Celtic Violins by Máiréad Nesbitt Celtic Violinist!

The line will apparently include both European and electric varieties.

I'm excited out of my mind and I don't even play violin.  I can't even imagine what a dream come true this must be for all you violin / fiddle players out there.

Cheesy

I play the piano, but I'm still excited to see her product line.

I used to play the piano (rather poorly, if I may say so): mediocre technical skill in spite of practicing hours a day for many years ... a musical failure matched only by my limited creativity.

Mairead's line of violins should be available starting in November (in time for the holidays)!

Mairead unveiled the models of violins in her line today!

The violins Mairead chose for her line reflect the warm, sweet tone she prefers.

Here's some videos of Mairead explaining the violin models and also the bows she's using with each model.

Introduction to the Máiréad Nesbitt Celtic Violin Collection

The Butterfly
* Student model.
* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vg2_nc3UGM


Invasion
* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGEAloQNmGs


Raining Up
* It has a warm, mellow tone, almost like a viola.
* Good for slow and fast-paced songs.
* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEm9wYy1PAU


Hibernia
* One of the premium violins.
* This one is handcrafted.
* It has a sweet and powerful sound and looks gorgeous!
* The bow she's using with it is similar to one of the bows she uses herself.

Celtic Dawn
* A high-end / premium model.
* She finds it very similar to her own violin.
* It has a warm, sweet tone.
* Good for slow and fast-paced songs.

Now you can play like Mairead plays!

... or at least play violins like the ones Mairead plays Wink

I'm excited and I don't even play violin! Lol!

I do think it would be pretty funny though for me to attempt to play The Butterfly with a Butterfly, twirling my clumsy self about the room, kicking and toppling things over excitedly.
